Sant Fateh Chand Head of Damdami Taksal


Recommended Posts

I recently saw an old copy of Baba Gurbachan Singh's "Gurbani Path Darpan" in which it had the lineage of the Damdami Taksal Jathedars and i was surprised to find in the lineage, name of a Singh who's name was Sant Fateh Chand. i thought maybe it was a mistake that they forgot to print Singh after the name, but as i did more research i found that indeed his name was Sant Fateh Chand. i came across another source The encyclopedia of Sikhism in which it also has the lineage of the Jathedars and it shows that baba ji's name written without the Singh.

Does anyone have anymore information if its true that baba ji didnt take Amrit and why. Or are the sources wrong.

link for lineage in encyclopedia of sikhism

If you read 'khalsa jivan' by sant kartar singh ji bhindranwale, it says that sant fateh chand became sant fateh singh after taking amrit. So they were a nirmala sant who took khande ki pahul and became Sant Fateh Singh Ji

Did Baba Fateh Singh become jathedar first then take Amrit or the other way around. Waheguru

They were not jathedar of damdami taksal, possibly amritsar vali - or a vidiarthi

Im pretty sure baba ji was jathedar of one of the brances of damdami taksal since it is mentioned in Gurbani path darpan.and on this link http://www.sikh-history.com/sikhhist/institutes/giani_samprdai.html

Right seen this some time ago but not had a chence to come on the forum, Sant Fateh Chand were part of the Sewapanthi Samparda where they use a metaphor title to show the continuation of the samparda. in the sewapanthis the majority of them are Shah (bhai Addan Shah), Ram (Bhai Seva Ram and Chan like Sant Fateh Chand. Singh is the alternative used like the nirmalas use the term Hari such as Sant Ishar Singh Rara Sahib Walae signing their letters Ishar Hari or Sant Gurbachan Singh Bhindrawalae signing their letters Chetanbilas Hari
